AMD’s New Polaris 11 Chips Spotted on Zauba with Import Price of € 560
AMD recently showcased their next-gen 14nm Polaris GPUs, dubbed Polaris 11 and Polaris 10, at the CES 2016. Now, a report from 3DCenter has revealed more details about these new Radeon GPUs.
According to a leaked slide, the next version of the hardware information utility HWiNFO will add support for AMD graphics chips Ellesmere, Baffin and Greenland. The report suggests that these chips are the same as referred by Polaris 11 and Polaris 10; and if that’s the case, Greenland should naturally correspond to Polaris 11 – that is set to power high-end desktops.
Whereas, the Ellesmere and Baffin are said to be the Polaris 10, that is designed to help enable performance-levels in notebooks and low-end PCs.
Moreover, Polaris GPUs have once again been spotted on the Indian import tracking portal Zauba. The shipment includes 24 pieces of graphics cards codenamed “C980” with the import price of ~ 560 EUR (appx. $605) per card. These are expected to be AMD’s high-end Polaris GPUs, attributed to the Greenland / Polaris 11 chips.
The other 15 graphics cards with the not-yet-mentioned “D000” codename, carry an import price tag of ~ 420 EUR (appx. $454) per card, and appear to be scaled-down versions of Polaris 11 chips.
As for the launch, AMD has already announced their new Radeon graphics products based on the latest Polaris architecture will be released before September. Both Polaris 11 and Polaris 10 are “extremely power efficient,” and are designed to deliver “our most revolutionary jump in performance so far,” as emphasized by the company’s graphics boss Raja Koduri.
